Editorial Reviews

Everyone in their upstate suburban community agrees that The Poes are the picture-perfect family: Pastor dad David, psychologist mom Clare, and the adorable 10-year-old twins Emily and Jack. But something has gone horribly wrong with the Poe children between Halloween and Easter, a grisly descent into madness and murder that David and Claire have captured on video. This found footage will reveal the shocking series of events. This is their HOME MOVIE.
Adrian Pasdar of HEROES and Cady McClain of ALL MY CHILDREN and AS THE WORLD TURNS star in this critically acclaimed and ferociously disturbing debut feature from writer/director Christopher Denham that rips open the dark side of the modern American family. You may never look at home videos the same way again...

Starring Adrian Pasdar ('Heroes') and Cady McClain ('All My Children'), 'Home Movie' tells the tale of a young family who has recently moved to the isolated countryside of upstate New York. At first, all seems perfect. The couple, a pastor and a child psychologist, is happy and in love. The house is beautiful. And, they have two adorable children. Soon after, however, the happy couple's perfect life begins to spiral out of control as their ten-year-old son & daughter start to show signs of aggressive and psychotic behaviour. As time passes, the children become worse & worse, eventually becoming a fight for survival between the parents and the children, all alone in their picturesque country home.

'Home Movie' continues the recent trend of point-of-view horror/thriller flicks like 'Rec,' 'Paranormal Activity,' and 'Cloverfield,' which has been helping to deliver unto the horror genre some of the scariest films in a long time. 'The Blair Witch Project,' while not the first point-of-view horror film, set the bar for fear high and would be one of the major trendsetters for this style of film-making. It's cheap, it's effective, and (what I think makes it scariest) it's more personal than standard film-making. 'Home Movie' is one of the films that very much takes advantage of this more 'personal' film-making style.

Technically speaking, the film is rather impressive. For what was clearly a very modest budget, they pulled a couple of marginally recognizable stars in Pasdar and McClain, thus guaranteeing at least adequate performances in what could have been a couple of difficult roles. The script is solid and keeps the pace going steady without jumping too fast into the kids going crazy, utilizing a nice, slow descent into madness.

Do you like 'horror'/'thriller' type movies? Then do not miss out on this film!

I stumbled upon this movie and was so pleased. The acting is excellent. The camera-work is consistent with what would be expected given that much is filmed from a first-person point-of-view.

This film is very creepy... beware, the film's main characters are 2 kids. Let's just say that if I had kids of this age bracket, I would probably have slept with my bedroom door locked after watching this movie.

The movie will keep you on the edge of your seat. You are always waiting and anticipating. The tension is built up early in the film and continues to maintain it's strength until the very end.

But to get under your skin and wreck your nerves. And this one succeeds.

While Mom and Dad are happy in love and being parents, the kids are obviously seriously disturbed. In fact, they don't speak until about half way through the movie.

Mom and Dad try to act like everything is A-Ok, but the movie carries a heavy, doom-is-on-the-horizon feel to it. Like, there is a hand raised wating for the right moment to slap. And slap it does.

All the actors involved gave excellent, convincing performances.

And for being a camcorder movie, the shaking and video disturbance of the usual found footage type movies if, for the most part, missing here. You can focus more of the story and actors instead of trying to figure out what you were supposed to be looking at or what direction the shot is.

This movie will haunt and UN-nerve you. Which is what true horror is supposed to do!

Oooh. Ah, man. How do I find the words for this one. Every time I watch it I realize more how brilliant it is. The first time around I was so caught up in the moment-to-moment of it that I didn't even realize some of the key facts, like that the kids basically NEVER EVEN SPEAK through the whole first part of the movie, and that, with one fateful exception, no cast members besides the family of pastor dad, child-psychiatrist mom, and deeply screwed-up fraternal twins Jack and Emily. The reason I didn't notice was because the actors are so damn engaging.
It opens on a Halloween dinner. Father David (Adrian Pastar) and mom Clare (Cady McClain, proving she can rise way above the world of daytime soaps) are so ebullient and engaging that I almost wished they were my parents, except there's just something a little forced in it all. Slowly, so slowly the movie dissects their characters, uncovers their weaknesses. Are they bad parents? Are they bad people? Keep asking yourselves that question as you watch the movie and you'll keep coming up with different answers, and that's part of what makes it not just a horror movie, but a DAMN FINE WORK OF ART!!! Writer and director Christopher Denham is definitely saying something here, something deep and important. What is he saying? I'm not sure. I'm not certain that Denham even knows, and he doesn't have to any more than a great chef needs to be able to put into words what she was thinking and feeling as she whipped up some once-in-a-lifetime feast. The elements brought into play here, faith, science, our attitudes toward marriage, our attitude toward children, our strategies for coping with stressful situations, child abuse, self-hate, clinical hubris (damn I'm a good writer), they're all there, and none of it is faked.
For crying out loud, just WATCH THIS MOVIE!!! IT ROCKS!!!
